Old Road Realignment Between Clarysville & Eckhart, Md

Recommended Posts



Good shot, but Mapit shows the location as downtown Cumberland. Is that site really in downtown Cumberland?




Keep the Show on the Road!



I don't know what happened... It should show the correct location now.

The road is paved and has the requisite concrete shoulders found on many Maryland sections of the National Road, circa 1930s. I believe the road was in use until the current alignment was finished in the 1950's.

Recent information I've come across notes Maryland embraced the Good Roads movement in the 1930s and improved many sections of the National Road during that period. (As seen in Christopher Busta-Peck's SHA photos of the era.)
